Welcome to #VisionZeroLDN! 1Dec17 Mother of 4 Hannah McWann struck by @TfL Bus in Zebra Crossing… According to friend @FreeBabarAhmad Hannah's still in Hospital. This week, Judge found Bus Driver "Not Guilty"… @CalumRutter @Heidi_LDN
A quick review of TfL's online Bus Safety Data for Q4 2017… doesn't show incident in question, so public doesn't know which Bus Company or Route was involved...and press photo in @SurreyComet doesn't show it either.
On Friday, I wrote TfL Dir Bus Operations Claire Mann & asked "which Bus Operator involved in this Zebra Crossing Collision?" but no response. Mann same TfL Bus Boss who didn't know how Saba Mirza-hit in Zebra Crossing by TfL Bus on 25Nov16-was either…
Ms. Mann also responded to my observation that TfL published erroneous Bus Fatality Data for 2016… which, to Mann's credit, she admitted were incorrect (the numbers they published were lower than actual) and TfL fixed
BUT that didn't stop TfL's press office from giving @EveningStandard @RossLydall incorrect figures (too low again) for number of Bus v. Pedestrian Fatalities for 2017 which was published in a #VisionZeroLDN article which has been amended to remove faulty fatal number & TfL quote
So, 2 incidents (AFAIK) where TfL Bus Drivers hit pedestrians in Zebra Crossings: Saba Mirza's still in hospital since Nov16 & convicted Bus Driver back on Bus for @ComfortDelGro Metroline. Hannah McWann hit Dec17 still in hospital & Bus Driver who hit her, now Free to go.
and meanwhile, TfL appears to be regularly publishing wrong information about number of people killed by its contracted Bus Operations & then giving that information to the press (which swallows the info w/o questioning)...or not publishing the incidents at all.
So, if (1) TfL Bus Drivers allowed to hit & critically injure pedestrians in Zebra Crossings (cf. Saba Mirza&Hannah McWann)… & (2) TfL can dissimulate re data on people killed or seriously-injured by its Bus Operation, then IMO #VisionZeroLDN => #Bollocks
